M-O-O-N spells moon

It is done! My Little Moon Sampler is finished up. Just about an hour ago I made the last cross. Now I only have to find a fitting frame for it.
I only made a small adjustment to the pattern. I stitched the letters for "Friend" a tone darker, because the original color was not giving a strong enough contrast to the fabric.

The name I stitched to the bottom is my Mr.'s last name. We are going to get married anyways, so there is no point of using my maiden name. "Mattila" is a very common name here in Finland, almost like "Smith" in English language. The meaning of it is basically "House of Matti", while the name "Matti" can be translated as "Mathew" or "Mathias".
